Nipo Nino: Neither Polish Nor Norwegians
In the heart of the Cerro Torre glacier, at the foot of the mountain itself, there is a basecamp area called Nipo Nino.
Several expeditions used it as an advanced camp from the 50s. It had several names, "La Playita", "La Pizza", and others, until in the beginning of 2000 it was named Nipo Nino, because it was located between
the Polish camps and Norwegians: neither Polish nor Norwegians (in spanish, NI POlacos NI NOruegos)".

Access to the cabin is completely independent, with a small entrance gallery surrounded by a garden of native and introduced plants that invites you to enjoy a moment of relaxation and feel the peace of the natural environment and contemplate the beautiful views of Cerro Rosado and the Cordón Del Bosque.
